RMR E-News   July 11, 2019
Hello RMR Faithful!
    It is the middle of July already and the summer heat is on!  It is rodeo time and El Paso County Fair week so this is the time we normally get rain.  We have been blessed with some great showers and the cover and crops are OUTSTANDING this year.  This will be a banner year for sure. 
     When I was out looking at the crops I kicked a hen off of her nest with 6 eggs and that was exciting!  We do get some birds to breed and hatch if conditions are right and the dang predators leave them alone.

   (I am going to leave the info about Dustin below so those of you that didn't read about the issue with Paul's son are up to speed.)
     Paul and his family had to make a hard decision on Wednesday July 10th to take Dustin off of life support.  He hasn't ever regained consciousness and his brain function was at 2%.  He was without sugar to his brain for to long (they don't know how long either).
     They moved him to Hospice and they are keeping him comfortable until he is called home to be with his savior.
     When we know more about a memorial service, I will let you all know.
     Paul and Suzanne and the girls are so very thankful for the prayers and emails and the cards of encouragement.   
     Anyone that has hunted with Rocky Mountain Roosters knows Paul Warnecke, RMR's assistant manager.  His son Dustin and his entire family are in desperate need of your prayers.
     Paul's son Dustin is in a diabetic coma and is very, very ill.  Tuesday July 2nd, they found him unresponsive at his home, still hooked up to his dialysis machine.
     As you might remember, (We have asked for your prayers via these newsletters in the past), Dustin has been on the organ transplant waiting list for a long time.  This past Sunday he was called saying they had a donor that matched him.  It didn't work out, and Paul took him home Monday evening and the family was unable to get in touch with him Tuesday morning.  They went to his home and found him.  They are unsure how long his brain was without blood sugar.
     If you have read any of these newsletters, you know that we believe in the power of prayer, and now we need prayer for Dustin.  Please ask God for his healing power and to wake Dustin up without brain damage.  Please pray for Paul's family and for any needs they have and for their strength.  Please pray for the hospital staff, nurses, doctors and others that are taking care of Dustin and his family.
     I will keep you all informed, and if you want to send Paul and the family a note to our office and we will get it to them

    Before this unexpected turn for the worse happened with Dustin, I have been planning on a campaign to help raise money for his medial expenses and to increase awareness about organ donations and the huge need for this across
the country.
     I hope to have this up and running next week.  Simply--it will be a way to donate and get a very cool T-Shirt to talk about Donating Life.  Watch the newsletter to get more info about it.

Do Mosquitoes Serve a Purpose??


FOR 2019
    We are taking reservations for the GIANT QUAIL hunts for this year.  These hunts are all day events and groups of up to four can harvest 100 Bobwhite Quail.  This is a fantastic workout for your dog or you can chose to have an RMR guide take you on the adventure.  The cost is still only $950 for members and their guests (Giant Quail hunt cost for non-members is $1250) and this is a limited opportunity.   
     We run these hunts from the first of October through December 15th. 
    You don't have to pick a date now, but you do need to get your name on the list for a hunt or two.  We have 40 hunts this year and we have started taking reservations for the fall already.  Give us a call or email us to get on the list for one or two hunts! 


A professor stood before his class of twenty senior organic biology students, about to hand out the final exam.

"I want to say that it's been a pleasure teaching you this semester. I know you've all worked extremely hard and many of you are off to medical school after summer. So that no one gets their GPA messed up because they might have been celebrating a bit too much this week, anyone who would like to opt out of the final exam today will receive a 'B' for the test."

There was much rejoicing in the class as students got up, walked to the front of the class, and took the professor up on his offer. As the last taker left the room, the professor looked out over the handful of remaining students and asked, "Anyone else? This is your last chance."

One final student rose up and opted out of the final.

The professor closed the door and took attendance of those students remaining. "I'm glad to see you believe in yourselves," he said. "You all get 'A's."

A guy walks into a shoe store and asks for a pair of shoes that are clearly undersized for him. The salesman says, "But, sir, I can see from up here that you'll need much bigger shoes than that."

The guy says, "That's OK, please bring me the smaller ones."

The salesman brings them, the guy stuffs his feet into them, ties them tight, and then he stands up, obviously in pain. The salesman just has to ask, "Sir, why must you have these undersized shoes?"

He says to the salesman, "I work a boring job, my mother-in-law has just moved in with us, my wife is nagging all the time, and our daughter does nothing but run around screaming the whole day. The only pleasure I have in life is taking off these tight shoes."

     During the summer at Rocky Mountain Roosters we are open 5 days a week, Tuesday thru Saturday.  Our summer hours allow our staff to spend time with their families and actually get to church on Sunday!  We are closed on Sunday and Monday until the middle of September. 
     If you want to shoot on any of the ranges or are out for a hike or are running your dogs, plan to do so Tuesday thru Saturday .
